I'm not a fan of reading books digitally, but my instinct that this book was probably only worth its Kindle price proved accurate. There is useful advice for beginning, or would-be authors, but the book is heavily padded with long re-prints of single selections of published pieces, with relatively short comments from editors about why they selected them for publication.

The same is true of the interviews with editors of magazines and publishers, to some extent, and the lengthy section on building a reference library. A lot of the book is taken up with the Mind, Body, Spirit genre, as opposed to straight-up writing by Pagans for Pagans, as well as a heavy emphasis on esoteric interests. There are a number of leads as far as magazines and book publishers to consider with a heavy emphasis on John Hunt imprints, who published this , and these are useful, but going out of date quickly.
Hardly news. As she points out right from the start, writing for the pagan community is no different from writing for any other readership and we need to learn the basic rules before deciding whether we have any talent worth pursuing.
Accessible, reader-friendly and highly informative, the book is highly recommended. The publisher has 24 active autonomous imprints , with the largest of these being the Zero Books imprint founded in John Hunt Publishing was founded in the United Kingdom in ,    originally named O Books,  a name which it continues to use as one of its imprints , in the "mind, body, and spirit" market. John Hunt Publishing then underwent a major reorganization in John Hunt Publishing "deals directly with authors" and does not require they have an agent.
However, "because they are a small publisher, they are unable to pay advances, so [authors] have to wait for the royalties to roll in". Friend Reviews.

Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. May 19, Suzanne Ruthven rated it really liked it. Aimed at novice writers, it offers really practical advice on how to get into print, whether you see yourself as a writer of fiction or non-fiction. Rather than dealing with the subject in the way that an English teacher might teach creative writing at school or evening class, author Melusine Draco concentrates on how to give magazine editors or book publishers what they want.
The Pagan Writers' Guide looks at things like the importance of doing research before you begin.
Compass Points - The Pagan Writers' Guide: Writing for the Pagan and MB&S Publications
That means both knowing your subject and knowing what kind of thing will appeal to the publishing house you are writing it for. Melusine explains just how the publication process works and what to expect when you send a proposal to an editor. The book ends with interviews of several editors from different pagan, occult and MBS lines asking them what they are looking for and - importantly - what will quickly get rejected and end up on the spike.
I can observe with confidence that Melusine Draco knows her stuff, all of the advice offered here is consistent with my experiences. Her tips and insights are presented with logic and clarity in a way that will be of great help to someone starting out.
This book could save you a lot of time and spare you from reinventing the wheel, or getting crushed by one. Nor does Melusine get into the awkward business of just how much work you can expect to do selling your book, assuming it gets out there in the first place.
